Positive Prevention: Play Safe

The responsibility of reducing the transmission of HIV is something all of us must share. Communication and information about sex and sexuality are most effective tools in reducing the spread of HIV. If you are infected with HIV, you need to follow safe sex guidelines and use condoms when having sex including with other HIV+ people. Using a condom reduces exposure to other sexually transmitted infections such as herpes or syphilis. If you already have HIV, these diseases can be even more serious. Also you can be re-infected with a different strain of HIV, which might be resistant to anti-retroviral drugs. Use a condom and practice safe sex.

A POSITIVE APPROACH TO LIFE Empowerment of an Individual Knowledge and skills to a healthy living SAKSHAM

Birth of the concept of study club & teen club meetings UNICEF has ensured that access to care, support and treatment for the entire HIV population especially children and adolescents amongst its many other interventions is in its prime. Today there are numerous interventions already carried out and many still going on that have brought positive results. It has been understood and accepted that even the best of clinical interventions will not help beyond a point if not assisted with psycho social interventions. Therefore it was necessary to create a platform for bringing positive children and adolescents together in each of the 5 UNICEF focus districts. UNICEF and Network of Maharashtra by people living with HIV & AIDS (NMP+) has been working in a very fruitful partnership with respect to HIV positive children and adolescents. Keeping the above issues in mind, Study Clubs and Teen Clubs were conceptualised and rolled out by NMP+, supported by UNICEF for children (10-14 years) and adolescents (15-19 years) living with HIV. Meetings were to be held of selected children in these clubs. This creation of  a ‘safe space’ has been a Pilot Project, the first of its kind, where not only children and adolescents were to be addressed but even parents/ care givers also via an orientation. The meetings were to be carried out for a period of three months. Post three months, there was to be an Experience Sharing and Review Meeting (ESRM). NMP+ could then continue to carry on these meetings for the coming months. Objectives behind Study Club Meetings To empower HIV-positive children to build positive relationships.
